ALFRED T. HODGE 

Mr. Alfred Hodge, head of the History De- 
partment, has during his thirty-six years at 
W. H. S. earned the esteem of the thousands 
of students who have had the good fortune of 
coming into contact with him. His example of 
character and conscientiousness have truly in- 
spired his students; he has been a teacher in the 
true sense of the word. With his retirement, 
Waltham High School loses an exceptional 
educator. 



CELIA M. SPENCER 

It is with deep regret that we learn of the re- 
tirement of Miss Celia M. Spencer, the head of 
our Mathematics Department. Miss Spencer re- 
ceived her B.A. degree from Mount Holyoke 
College and began teaching in Montclair, New 
Jersey, and after a few years in a private school 
in Kingston, N. H., came to Waltham High 
School in November, 1909. During her thirty- 
eight years of teaching here, she lias gained the 
respect and admiration of all her pupils, and her 
fine teaching and unselfishness have made her one 
of the best-liked teachers of our school. We wish 
her a future of unlimited happiness and success.

BETTY JEAN HODGDON 
Class Poet 

GlaiA Poem 

We who shall stumble too eagerly over tomorrow's threshold 

That separates the future from the now distant past, 

Hold firmly with the heart's sure, knowing, grasp 

The dreams, ideals, and visions that must last 

Beyond this too brief moment, hurried hour 

Springing from hidden seed to bloom, to flower 

And die. We must hold them fast. 

Lest slipping through our fingers they should escape us 

Lost in the breathless flurry of the swift, passing years; 

Too quickly hidden from the world's sharp eyes, 

Its mockery and scorn, its open jeers. 

Returning thus, when evening shadows find 

Us in darkness, filled with a sudden, blind 

And nameless longing, sharpened with bitter tears; 

For all the half-forgotten dreams, the unfulfilled ambitions. 

For every deed undone, each noble thought unsaid, 

Each song unsung, each city yet unbuilt 

Phantoms of youth, vanished, and long since fled 

Along the dusty corridors of time 

While that high mountain we have failed to climb 

Lifts high its distant snow-crowned peak ahead. 

Grant us, young both in heart and spirit, 
The strength of purpose to achieve our goal; 
To meet life's challenge with a faith triumphant 
And an unconquered soul. 

Betty Jean Hodgdon, '47 



QlaAA Pnatihecu 



a 



S I WALKED into the 
dimly lighted room, I won- 
dered if the words I was soon 
to hear would really have any 
effect upon the future. En- 
tering the room, I paused for 
a moment until I accustomed 
myself to the semi-darkness. 
A voice from the dark told 
me to sit down- I waited 
for the mysterious oracle to 
speak again. Suddenly I was 
startled to hear, "Come 
closer, closer!" Obeying im- 
plicitly, I pulled my chair 
nearer. "Look with me into 
the crystal ball, and we shall 
see what the future holds for 
the class of 1947." Upon hearing these words, I 
was transported into the future with Madame 
Zora, my trusted fortune teller. 

The Time — i960. The Place — Waltham. 
I find myself walking down Main Street, but a 
Main Street that is completely transformed. Un- 
believable changes have taken place since 1947. 
1 walk slowly along this street which was once 
so familiar. Noticing a modernistic-looking build- 
ing, I draw nearer to see the name of the com- 
pany which occupies this beautiful structure. 
Looking on the plate which adorns the front of 
the building, I find the inscription, "Hansbcrry, 
llansberry, Hansbcrry & Wright." Realizing, of 
course, that Joanne Wright must be the silent 
partner, I think that it just like the old days. 
Reading farther down on the plate, I see, "This 
building constructed and designed by Marilyn 
Gowell, famous American architect and engin- 
eer." 1 also remember that Marilyn is married 
to that famous scientist and explorer, Dick Dou- 
cette. Making a mental note to return to this 
building and look up these old friends, I continue 
on my lonely way.

SHIRLEY ROCKWOOD 

Class Prophet 



Suddenly, like a bolt from 
the blue, a voice hails me, 
"Hey, Shirl!" Rejoicing that 
at last I have found someone 
to talk to, I turned quickly, 
and whom do I see but Gene- 
vieve Lembo. Genny hasn't 
grown an inch since our high 
school days, and, as we walk 
along, I ask her what she has 
been doing with herself. 
Much to my surprise, I learn 
that she has been teaching 
football to prospective players 
for Waltham High. Our new 
football coach, Ga-Ga Kou- 
lopoulos, has told her that she 
is the best teacher he has ever 
had. As we talk, she tells me what has become 
of some of the old gang. Connie Erickson bought 
a restaurant, but, upon finding that he ate up 
most of the profits, had to retire to a life of 
leisure. While he was in business, Marie Aucoin, 
Carolyn Mulock, and Edith Monroe served as 
his three charming waitresses. Joe Chaisson is 
now the star player for the Boston Bruins, taking 
the place of Don Gallinger, the 1947 idol. A 
loud crash interrupts our conversation, and we 
turn to see Philip Pintabona and his- wife, Ruth 
Shaw, limply climbing out of their wrecked car. 
Officer Fred Rollins rushes up to see the cause of 
the disturbance, and Phil is hauled away to jail, 
despite the tears of Ruth. Leaving this heart- 
rending scene, we walk along, until Genny leaves 
me at the next corner. 

Finally reaching Central Square, I notice a 
huge new drug store on the corner of Moody and 
Main Streets. Feeling rather thirsty from all my 
gossip with Genny, I decide to go in and sample 
their bill of fare. Whom do I find behind the 
soda fountain but David Collins, still at his fa- 
vorite pastime, soda jerking. I give him my order, 



and turn to look around at the new store. I catch 
a glimpse of a small office at the rear of the store, 
so I amble up to see who the young lady sitting 
behind the desk is. Why it's Rose Marie Duffy, 
now a private secretary to soda king David. Why 
he needs a secretary, I really couldn't say. While 
I am drinking my coke, Pauline Hebert, John 
Caruso, and family come in for their afternoon 
snack. After chatting with them, I rise to go. As 
I open the door to leave, Jackie Rudcnauer is just 
coming in. He tells me that he comes in every 
day to see if he can get some new ideas to in- 
corporate in Beatty's Drug Store, of which Jackie 
is now owner. 

Leaving the square, I automatically head to- 
ward Waltham High. As I get in front of the 
City Hall, I notice a banner which proclaims, 
"Lome MacArthur unanimously elected United 
States Senator from Massachusetts." I stop for 
a moment to think what this victory will mean 
to our greatest politician, Lome, and to his suc- 
cessful campaign manager, Dick Gamble; then I 
continue down to Church Street. Reaching Wal- 
tham High, I see that it has been completely re- 
built, and is now a very modern building, with 
only six wings. I enter the school and walk down 
the first floor corridor to see if any of our old 
teachers are still pounding knowledge into un- 
responding heads. In Miss Flagg's old room, 
I find Joan Lavash, emphatically stating that 
there is no need to get dirty when doing mimeo- 
graph work. In 106 Freda McLaughlin is teach- 
ing the elements of algebra, with Dick Boulton 
doing all her problems for her. Reaching my old 
home room, 109, I look to see if Miss Mooney 
is still there. Sure enough, there she is. She is 
determined that she shall not retire until she 
teaches Rcece McGilvray the rudiments of short- 
hand. Reece is just as gay as ever, teasing Miss 
Mooney until she could hit him over the head 
with her shorthand manual. In Miss Wood- 
ward's old office, I find Theresa Chaisson, happily 
content as long as she can find all her prize pupils 
good secretarial positions. In Miss Rigby's old 
room, Shirley Smith is teaching a group of boister- 
ous juniors the fundamentals of filing. Shirl tells 



me that when Miss Rigby left, she had the supply 
closet door permanently sealed. Some of us will 
know the reason why. The problems of democ- 
racy are being ably taught by Norman Wagner 
in 118. Finally reaching 015, I see Mr. Hood 
teaching a class of seniors the beauties of Mac- 
beth and illustrating his lecture with a poster 
drawn and painted by Eleanor Rouffe, an emi- 
nent artist. We notice that Mr. Hood has an 
able assistant in the form of Paul Dougherty. Mr. 
Hood picked Paul because of his mental ability, 
and also because he is shorter than Mr. Hood. 
Leaving Mr. Hood and Paul, I go down into 
the gym to see what changes have been brought 
there. Mary Koutoujian and Mary Hoivley are 
teaching the girls' gym classes. On every Tues- 
day and Thursday, the girls have dancing lessons 
from the representative of the School of Dancing, 
run by Carol Beck, Betty DiMurro, and June 
Bauer. Realizing that this must increase the so- 
cial activities of the school, I decide to find out 
who teaches the boys dancing. I find that John 
Stanton and Al DeSisto are teaching the regular 
gym classes, and dancing is taught by John Drury 
and John Gallagher. This is quite an astounding 
fact, so I decide to go and peek into the boys' 
gym and see how the fellows are making out. 
I see both Johns in their pink tights teaching the 
boys of the Junior Class the rhythm of the Ballet. 
This is too much for me, so I leave and head 
toward the cafeteria to partake of some nourish- 
ment. I open the door — and enter the "Caf " 
but what a place it is now. It is furnished with 
flowering shrubs and huge window boxes filled 
with flowers. There are booths, and all the 
furniture is done in red leather with chromium 
trimmings. And, will wonders never cease? They 
actually have waitresses! While noticing and ad- 
miring all the added grandeur, I see a small stage 
in the center of the room. While I am watching 
this spot, out steps Lloyd Corkum and begins 
to sing "The Anniversary Song." As he sings, 
I think to myself, "This boy may not sing just 
like Frankie, but he certainly has a physique like 
his." After eating my steak and mushrooms with 
french fried potatoes, served as a main dish for 



only ten cents, I leave the cafeteria and head to- 
ward the office to talk with the new principal, 
Rusty Mula. Rusty tells me that when he was 
trying to get in as principal, he had as his slogan, 
"A coke machine for every room in the building." 
He was ably assisted in his campaign by Happy 
Patty S farmer. Rusty is definitely in favor of 
shorter school hours and less homework. You can 
see that he hasn't changed much from the old 
days. His two competent secretaries, Georgette 
Landry and Marjorie Ellis are vainly trying to 
keep up with his dictation. As I leave the office, 
I can still hear their groans of protest. 

A notice on the bulletin board across from the 
office informs me that there is a movie being 
shown up in the assembly hall. Remembering the 
old movies on etiquette, I climb the stairs to see 
what the modern movies are like. I find that 
it is a picture on the people who have become suc- 
cessful after graduating from Waltham High. 
The picture is produced and directed by Eliza- 
beth Jackson, and Barbara Johnson and Cash- 
man Grey have the leading roles. I sit in the 
dark and watch the every-day actions of these 
people whom I once knew so well. Jane Gardner 
is pictured on the screen in a two-piece bathing 
suit, and she doesn't look much different from 
the glamourous Jane we all knew. The music 
in th^ production is written and directed by Her- 
man Sabsay, the famous band leader. The pic- 
ture is sponsored by Malcolm Wetherbee, presi- 
dent of that great company, "Mother Murphy's 
Home-Made Chocolate Cookies." During the 
intermission, Leona Smith walks upon the stage 
and models the latest creations of the famous de- 
signer, Joan Crane. After the movie is over, an 
announcement is made that tickets are on sale at 
the door for the latest Hovey Players Production, 
supervised by Gloria Sears. As I buy two tickets 
from Gloria, she tells me that the starring roles 
are held by Sylvia Alexander, who plays the part 
of a colored butler named Richard, and Al Ter- 
rano, who portrays the lawless gangster, Al 
Capone. 

Leaving the school, I decide I will walk over 
toward Moody Street. Just as I am crossing the 



Common, I catch sight of a truck in the distance. 
It is one of the many trucks of Robert Cheney, 
the Friendly Florist. Judging from all his ex- 
perience, he should make a good one. Reaching 
the spot where Grover Cronin's used to be located, 
I see Joe Morreale's Matrimonial Agency. In 
the block-long window, which is built just like 
the inside of a home, we find Ernie Whitenack 
and Ginny Crosby. In front of them is a full 
length poster, reading, "You, too, can be happily 
married after ten years." I think to myself that 
the window is getting a trifle crowded with Ernie, 
Ginny and their four children. As I turn away 
from this display, I seem to hear a very familiar 
voice. I look around, but cannot see anyone who 
looks the least bit familiar. Suddenly I realize 
that the voice is coming from a sound truck that 
is passing by. I stop to listen to see if I can 
recognize the voice. "Learn to drive the safe 
and easy way. No one is too dumb to learn to 
drive from J can Storer, Vice President in charge 
of teaching at the Storer and Bomengen School of 
Driving." The speaker goes on to explain how a 
new blue convertible is provided for the lessons, 
and how Jean's father fixes all wreckage done to 
the car. Suddenly, as I listen to the voice, it 
comes to me as that of Jean Galinauski, who used 
to be spokesman for IVDS2 in 1947. The truck 
soon passes on, and I make a mental note to go 
to this driving school whenever I want to die 
quickly. 

In the building in which Liggett's used to be 
located, there is a new newspaper, called the 
Waltham Scribe, the scribe being Robert Sivc- 
wright. Remembering what a help Bob was on 
the Mirror, I decide to go in and see how his 
newspaper is running. As I open the door, I am 
greeted by receptionist Janet Neal, who smiles 
politely until she remembers who I am. Janet 
informs me that I shall have to wait if I want to 
see Bob, so I decide to take a tour of the building. 
In the city-room the first person I notice is Rita 
Lyons, the Society Editor. Rita is one of the 
most sought after reporters in the country. Pat 
Neal is seated at a desk, her feet elevated in the 
air, looking very comfortable indeed. Pat is 



the Sports Editor, and she is waiting for the 
results of the day's major football games. At her 
right is seated Helen Banacos, the Humor Editor, 
who draws her cartoons under the name of the 
"Greek." At the back of the room, seated at a 
very long, narrow desk in the corner, are Spats 
Vincello and Irma Cormier, the Love-Lorn Edi- 
tors. Spats answers all the women's letters and 
Irma, all the men's. In their personal life, Irma 
and Spats are very happily married. Finally Janet 
tells me that I may go in to see Bob, and I enter 
the sumptious office of the owner and editor. Bob 
greets me enthusiastically, and we sit down to 
talk over all the latest gossip. Bob is well posted 
on all the latest developments of all our old 
friends. Soupy Campbell and his wife, Barbie 
Cusack, are touring the world on their second 
honeymoon. Normie Roy and his wife, Ruth 
Collins, are in Florida for the Red Sox spring 
training period ; Norm is now number one pitcher 
for the Sox. He is well-aided by first baseman 
Diddy Harte. Dolores Mollica is singing the hit 
song, "Goofus," on Broadway, in a show that has 
been running for twenty weeks. Stella Tomalty 
is now head of the Waltham Hospital. Margaret 
Orifice, Grace Twomey, and Berniece Holmes 
are all important executives in the Standwell 
Products Corporation of New York City. Soon 
my ten minutes are up, and I must leave Bob to 
his more important affairs. As I pass through the 
city room once again, I notice Alice LeBlanc 
busily writing the alumni notes for St. Sebas- 
tian's. She has able assistance from one of St. 
Sebastian's former pupils. 

Leaving the newspaper office, I notice that the 
next store is a travel agency. The slogan of this 
agency is, 'Ask Paul Cormier, and he'll tell you 
where to go." A big sign in the window proclaims 
that the most successful health resort in the coun- 
try is owned by Phyllis Wheeler, Phyllis Taylor, 
and Barb Allen. The poster pictures Tony Man- 
gixni as "before" and Tiny Parish as "after," visit- 
ing the resort, that is. I'll also bet that Vaughan 
Williamson is a regular visitor, too. Another 
added feature of this company is Dorothy Cdm- 
pana, who will knock the kinks out of your back 



by massage while Edith Kierstead washes and sets 
your hair. Howie Read, now an M. D,., .will 
bring you back to life after these two have finished 
with you. 

A sign in the other window announces that a 
new hotel is being opened in New Jersey, under 
the management of Ann Getz; Shirley Grimes is 
doing all the bookkeeping, and Dotty Haynes en- 
tertains the guests by singing, "Frankie at the 
Saturday Matinee." , . 

As I move on from the window of the travel 
agency, I hear newsboy Peter Yarossi screaming 
the current headlines. I buy a paper from Pete, 
who looks very scornful, for I gave him no tip, 
and look to see what the latest news is. For good- 
ness sakes ! The Jack Leary Youth Center is 
opening today at Bicycle Park. I quickly decide 
that I shall not miss this great opening, so I hop 
into a waiting taxi, only to find it already occu- 
pied. Why, it's Barb Hunter, and she invites me 
to share her cab, an offer which I readily accept, 
since she is headed for the same place. Our driver 
on that hectic ride was Lawrence Simonetti. 
When I first looked I thought we had two drivers, 
but I found that it was Beverly hand, Larry's 
wife. Bev rides with Larry to keep him company 
and also to keep any beautiful girls from riding 
with Larry. I wonder briefly how I happened to 
be allowed to ride in the cab. We finally reach 
the park, and we pay Larry and hop out. I leave 
Barb and enter the stadium. The ceremony has 
already started, but I am not too late to see all 
the important celebrities entering. Here comes 
Professor Gerald Dahill and his beautiful young 
wife, Patricia Merrill. The world-famous sci- 
entist, Alvin Becker, enters right behind them. 
Behind him come Mr. and Mrs. America, David 
Thomas and Betty Norcross. When all these 
people have been given prominent seats on the 
stage, the main speaker of the day, Margaret 
Sherman, enters and her topic for today is, "The 
Activities of a High School Student." Margaret 
makes a wonderful speech, and receives a tumul- 
tuous round of applause. She is properly thanked 
by the Chairman of the Program, Ray McGil- 
vray. Ray has been elected president of the youth 



organization because it was decided that he was 
the best equipped to give the children the best 
possible start in life. After the formal ceremony 
is over, I decided to look around this vast place 
and see what benefits the children of i960 have 
that those of 1947 did not have. 

At the indoor swimming pool, I find Lois Cool- 
idge teaching the young people the backstroke. 
Just as I pass the pool, David Hay snaps a pic- 
ture to add to his collection of photographs of 
city events. Dave has inherited his father's well- 
known ability. As I enter the next room, I am 
surprised to find a number of little children, aged 
from about two to six, all lying on blankets on 
the floor. This baffles me, so I stick my head in 
a little farther, and what do I see but Natalie 
Leonard reading bed-time stories from Grimm's 
Fairy Tales to the children. Nat seems to be en- 
joying this quite as much as the children. Leaving 
this room with its peaceful occupants, I enter the- 
next room to find bedlam. Patty Dicks is vainly 
trying to teach a group of young girls the method 
of vaulting the boom. On the opposite side of 
the room is Shirley Fullerton instructing another 
group of girls in the art of singing correctly in 
the shower. In another corner Phyllis Corrigan, 
Dot Plante, and Shirley Erikson are leading a 
band of young rooters in loudest cheers for Wal- 
tham High. With all this noise, the turmoil in 
the room sounds more like a hog-calling contest 
than anything else. Going on to the next room 
I look in to find Anne Koundakjian and Louise 
Hayes teaching the art of giving the quickest an- 
swer to the teacher's mild jokes at all times. In 
the last room of all I perceive a miniature bowl- 
ing alley with Rosamond McKenney and Alice 
Nix expertly teaching their pupils. Finally, de- 
ciding to go outside and see what sports are being 
taught out-of-doors, I see Muriel Crossland and 
Mary Gardiner teaching the girls how to play 
field hockey. Mai really has the game developed 
into quite a slugging contest; the one with the 
hardest punch wins. Across the field, I notice 
a hot-dog stand being run by June Varney and 
J une McElhiney. They seem to be attracting the 
biggest crowd of opening-day visitors. Suddenly 



a loud roar comes from the direction of South 
Street. Why, it's a parade! Leading the parade 
in a very short, white costume is Freddie Rourke. 
Marching in the parade are all the Vets who 
went to school with us in 1947. Some of them 
are Bob Lally, Babe Carlson, Connie Erickson, 
Ray Fliggins, John Hopkins, Tony Romano, Bob 
Driscoll, Sal Rizzo, Bert McKenney, Eddie Car- 
ney, and many others. I notice that Tony and 
Babe are using canes now. Of course, they aren't 
getting any younger. After the parade has passed, 
I stop to rest my weary feet and watch the pass- 
ing people. The first couple I happen to notice 
is Thelma MacArthur and Paul Kelly. Teddy 
has a firm hand on Paul's arm to keep him from 
getting into any kind of trouble. A minute later, 
Bob Lassen runs by looking for a nurse. His 
wife has just fainted. Jean Tewksbury arrives 
on the scene swiftly and informs us that she is 
a registered nurse. After she manages to bring 
Bob's wife back to consciousness, I move on to 
see what is attracting such a huge crowd at one 
end of the field. On a mammoth stage are seated 
seven personable young men, and behind them a 
sign announces that they are the only members 
left of the Bachelors Forever Club. These seven 
stubborn young men who are disillusioning young 
women every day are : John McLean, Freddy 
Wills, Ray Comeau, Ken Flalloran, Sal Coraccio, 
Paul Worcester, and Dick Goodale. Stopping 
for a moment to think what this will mean to 
hopeful girls all over the world, I sit down on 
a bench. While I am sitting there, I see a group 
of young women coming along the walk with 
placards in their hands. Why, they're going to 
picket the Bachelors Forever Club ! These cou- 
rageous young ladies are Mary MacDonald, 
Charlotte Forsythc, Edith Veno, Ramona Caia, 
Catherine V anuria, Naomi Kaitz, Doris Hennesy, 
Rose Marie Casinelli, and Loretta Chaisson. Soon 
after these ladies depart, Usherette Reva Meyers 
comes along escorting Donald Meade, James 
Lynch, Earl Tractenburg, Bob McGovern 
George Notorgiacomo, and Carl Wagner. I won- 
der how Reva is lucky enough to have six hand- 
some men following her, but this is a question that 



will probably never be answered. A few minutes 
later Lois Russell MacDonald and her family 
come strolling by. They are having a little quar- 
rel over which path to take, and finally they de- 
cide to go to the right. Not wishing to follow 
them, I take the path leading to the left. As I 
pursue my own course, a strange sensation comes 
over me; I'm back again in Madame Zora's 
mvstic environment. The crystal ball has clouded 



over, and no more of the future is revealed. 
I pay the oracle and depart. Strolling dreamily 
down the street, I think to myself "What remark- 
able things have been shown to me!" The ques- 
tion now is: "How many of these prophesied 
facts will come true?" The answers will hardly 
be forthcoming until i960 and the following 
years. Let's see what they will be !

Glcuii Jltitotof, 



,2)T IS 1943 and eighty 
freshmen are trying to plod 
over sophomores, juniors, and 
seniors in an attempt to re- 
deem themselves and their 
cause. They come in assorted 
sizes. Some are four feet tall, 
while others are four feet 
wide. They have been mak- 
ing daily trips to the fourth 
floor in search of the elevator 
which the senior president 
told them they would find 
there. By November they 
have marshalled their forces 
and have elected Tommy 
Pinzone, Dick Frank, Mari- 
lyn Gowell, and Freda Mc- 
Laughlin, as President, Vice-President, Secretary- 
Treasurer, and Auditor respectively. They are 
now ready to defend themselves against sopho- 
mores, juniors, and seniors alike. With Mr. 
Mosher they plan the campaigns against the up- 
perclassmen, and by the end of the second quarter 
are showing the seniors a few new angles. 

As 1 943- 1 944 is the last year in which ninth 
graders are allowed to pass through the sacred 
portals of W. H. S., the sophomores of 1944- 1945 
are again the humble characters in the school. 
The numbers of the ranks have swelled consider- 
ably and again officers are elected. Lanky Lome 
MacArthur is President, Marilyn Gowell is 
Vice-President, Happy Howie Read is Secretary- 
Treasurer, and Richard (of Open the Door 
fame) Doucette is Auditor. Mr. Hollis has taken 
the banner in hand this year and with the help 
of Tony Mangini and his committee has staged 
a verv successful Sophomore Social. This is the 
first event at which the boys are labeled either 
as Big Time Operators or "drips," as the out- 
moded terms go. The girls, oddly enough, aston- 
ish all, including their escorts. The wrinkled

sacks which were excuses tor 
sweaters have been exchanged 
for apparel known as date 
dresses. The members of the 
class are beginning to show 
signs of approaching matur- 
ity; however, when they are 
spied by their elders at foot- 
ball games rooting for their 
team that has won the East- 
ern State Championship, the 
oldsters shake their heads in 
wonderment. By the time 
the basketball team has trot- 
ted away with the Suburban 
League Basketball Champion- 
ship, the sophs are very glad 
to be a part of their school. 
When September 1945 rolls around, and the 
Junior Class begins to sit in assemblies on Tues- 
day mornings, proud faces are evident everywhere. 
Time marches on, as do the Junior girls in out- 
sized affairs worn in place of old-fashioned bobby 
sox. Over the masses of wool, if there is room, 
loafers are worn. The socks protrude from strange 
and weird places like seams of the loafers, but 
this style is definitely the newest thing! 

First thing to be done, of course, is to get 
officers elected as soon as possible. Lome Mac- 
Arthur is again President, Betty DiMurro is 
Vice-President, and Lilian Wilkie is Secretary- 
Treasurer. Lorny gives a few well-chosen words 
each Tuesday morning. Two, to be exact. The 
hockey and baseball teams are rolling along beau- 
tifully, and the basketball team has received a 
Tech Tourney invitation. The Junior Prom has 
been held, and under the chairmanship of Johnny 
Hansberry, it has proved to be a big success. 
But 1 946- 1 947 is the class of '47's dream year. 
Since they have been freshmen, they've been wait- 
ing for the right to go on record as seniors. The 
day has arrived! They are the top characters in 



the school. As is generally the case with seniors, 
there is no holding them down, as Mr. Mosher, 

class advisor, is soon to find out. As tradition will 
have it, Lome is again President, with Ruthie 
Collins, Barbara Allen, and Johnny Hans- 
berry as Vice-President, Secretary-Treasurer, and 

Auditor, respectively. This prominent foursome 
is given due publicity in "This Week at Waltham 
High," which is edited by Alvin Becker and Barb 
Cusack each Wednesday afternoon from the li- 
brary. These two nevvshounds have but one ob- 
jective — NEWS! — . "Put it in the column" 
has become the password. The Dramatic Club, 
sponsored by Miss Brown and Mr. Huff, is roll- 
ing along with Betty Jackson as President. The 
club has given two one-act plays which were di- 
rected by Mr. Nelson. The basketball team is 
again out in front, and has received another invi- 
tation to the Tech Tourney; not only docs the 
team deserve credit, but also the peppy cheer- 
leaders and the band. 

The night of the Senior Dance — ah yes, there 
hangs a tale. There are blizzards and there are 
blizzards, but there's no holding a good senior 
down. As foot after foot of snow has piled up, 



the future of the dance becomes uncertain. But 
it is held, and the girls carry their corsages, the 
boys carry the girls, and Dad's car carries all. 
When the boys discover that the floor does not 
appear to be waxed, the girls tactfully suggest 
that they remove their rubbers to facilitate danc- 
ing conditions, and "a good time is had by all." 

The class motto "Excelsior" has carried the 
class through three years of work and fun. Now 
it is time to start thinking of Class Day, Gradua- 
tion, and the Senior Play. "June Mad," the 
stars of which are Ruthie Collins and Clark 
Campbell, is directed by Mr. Nelson. 

Everyone wonders what is ahead next for him, 
and each knows that he'll never forget these won- 
derful days at Waltham High. He'll always re- 
member the people who have helped him so much 
when life was so unhappy, the exams were im- 
possible or, yes, even when his new girl had jilted 
him. These are his school days, and they have 
been superb, every minute of them. Life ahead 
may seem very uncertain, but here is something he 
can always remember to be truly — the best time 
of his life.

$& E IT KNOWN to all 

men that we, the Class of

testament. 

To Mr. Goodrich we leave 
our admiration for his deep 
interest in and his efficient 
administration of Waltham 
High School. 

To the Class of '48, next

a Sophomore Miserable. This 
book, retailing at $7, has been 
written by the talented jokesters, Tony Mangini, 
Mai Weatherbee, and Bob Lassen. 

To Mr. Hodge we leave a package of "El 
Ropo" cigars with which to celebrate the first 
day of his retirement. 

To Miss U. B. Hart, who has weathered the 
assault of the Technical and College Preparatory 
German class, we bequeath a whistle with which 
to quiet down her exuberant future engineers. 

To all the Waltham High School students 
whose fate it will be some day to study chemistry 
and physics we leave our sincere condolences. 

And to Messrs. Morang, Hollis, and May, 
who pilot their students through the above men- 
tioned courses, we leave a copy of The Slave 
Driver's Manual, a book describing the intrica- 
cies of handing out three-hour homework assign- 
ments. 

To the Misses Rigby, Mooney, and Grover we 
leave a helicopter in which they may hover over 
their passing classes and tag potential class clip- 
pers as they attempt to make their "get-aways." 

To Dick Doueette, Ernie Whitenack, Joe Mor- 
reale, Don Meade, Bob Pattersen, Dick Gamble, 




HOWARD READ 

Class Will 



Fred Wills, John Drury, 
Carl Wagner, Paul Kelly, Al 
DiSisto, and F. C. Rollins 
we leave box tickets to that 
well-known orpheum whose 
motto is "Always something 
doing, et cetera." 

To Marilyn Gowell, girl 
most likely to succeed, we 
bequeath a pair of tweeds 
with the hope that she will 
use them to advantage when 
she makes her start in the 
masculine profession of en- 
gineering. 

To Margaret Sherman, 
most studious girl, we have a 
copy of Milton's 77 Peuseroso 
which she can read if ever the desire to forsake 
the studious life comes to her. 

To Lome MacArthur, our most popular boy 
and our president for three years, we leave a 
"vote for MacArthur" button and also the prom- 
ise of our support in the 1952 presidential election. 
To Jean Sheridan, best-looking senior girl, we 
leave a bottle of grade A oomph oil and a long, 
low whistle. 

To Dave Thomas, best-looking boy, we leave 
a small black book in which he may place alpha- 
betically a list of his cuties. 

To Rusty Mula, our class wit, we leave a 
copy of Can You Top This? and also a genuine 
Colgate laugh meter with which he may compute 
the success of his gags. 

To Jane Gardner, brightest social light, we 
leave a forty-eight hour day during which she can 
accomplish her many social duties. 

To our glamor girl, Edyth Lunny, we be- 
queath a sarong. Need I say more? 

To Joan Crane, best-dressed girl, we leave 
a supply of zippers so that she will never tall vic- 
tim to that terrible enemy of femininity "gaposis." 



To Ruth Collins, who holds double honors as 
the most popular girl and Miss Personality-plus 
of Waltham High School, we leave a black limou- 
sine in which to speed away from her autograph- 
hungry public. 

To John Hansberry, best-dressed boy, we leave 
a derby hat and a box of tacks so that he may 
retain his sharpness. 

To Mary Koutoujian, our most athletic girl, 
we leave a pair of Long black stockings for which 
she will find use when she becomes a "gym" in- 
structor. 

To Norman Roy, who is by unanimous choice 
our most athletic boy, we leave a box of wheaties. 



To Clark Campbell and Barbara Johnson, 
chosen best actor and actress respectively, we 
leave a box of mellow tomatoes which will serve 
to protect them against future egg or grapefruit

For almost fifteen years Doctor Coh n has con- 
scientiously and efficiently carried out his duties 
as physician for the Waltham High School ath- 
letic teams, gaining the respect and admiration of 
the entire student body. 

"Doc," as he is known to almost everyone, 
graduated from Waltham High School with the 
class of 1922. During his three years here he be- 
came well known as an outstanding student and 
for his athletic ability in basketball. He received 
his B.A. from Tufts College in 1925 and his 
M.D. in 1929. Following his internship at sev- 
eral large New York and Boston hospitals he 
established his office in Waltham. He served in 
the U. S. Army Medical Corps between 1942 and 
1946, attaining the rank of major. 

Most of us well remember "Doc" for the ex- 
cellent medical care he has given the athletic 
teams, but to many of us, he has been both friend 
and adviser. His sincere interest in the students 
and their welfare and his help and advice have 
been instrumental in assisting many Waltham 



High School students to attend college and to 
plan their careers. Both the student body and fac- 
ulty greatly appreciate this, and we take this op- 
portunity to express our heartfelt thanks.

Lome, fifac Arthur 



COACH QU/NN 



One of the best known schoolboy sports writers 
in the state printed in his column during the bas- 
ketball season that no schoolboy basketball coach 
in Massachusetts was a greater student of the 
game than our own likeable court mentor, Arthur 
Quinn. In making this statement the writer 
really hit the nail on the head as is attested by 
the fact that since Waltham High School revived 
basketball under Mr. Quinn in 1937, its teams 
have registered 1 1 1 victories against only 59 de- 
feats. (This record docs not include the [942 
season in which Mr. Quinn was in the service and 
Jack Leary directed the basketball team.) As we 
bear his reputation and record in mind, it seems 
strange that while in high school and in college 
Mr. Quinn never had the vaguest inkling that he 
would some day wind up holding the reins of a 
high school basketball team. 

Mr. Quinn attended Boston College High 
where he was a member of the hoop squad and 
upon graduating entered Boston College, where 
basketball wasn't at that time a recognized sport. 
After receiving his AH degree he studied lor and 



received his Masters Degree in English, grad- 
uating in 1925. Four years later, in 1929, he took 
the position of English teacher at the Waltham 
Trade School. In the same year he assumed the 
role of coach of the Trade School fledgling court 
five. Mr. Quinn guided the teams through eight 
highly successful seasons, in which they emerged 
victors in 75 per cent of their games. In 1937 
he was called upon to revive the game of basket- 
hall at Waltham High School, which was to be 
a member of the new six-team Suburban League. 
In his first season he molded a powerful team that 
tied Rindge Tech for league supremacy. Rindge 
refused to play Waltham for the title, but a 
clash did develop between the two for the right 
to represent the league in the Tech Tournament, 
Rindge winning on its home court, 24-16. After 
a good [938 season, the Quinnmen became locked 
in a three-way tie for the title from Arlington, 
32-30. His 1940 and 1941 teams had mediocre 
seasons and in 1942 the high school suffered its 
first and onlj losing season since 1937 as it wound 
up with nine losses against seven victories. The

Other outstanding players that have come un- 
der his guidance are Roy Melody, Cliff Larson, 
Phil Caminiti, Bill Manning, Dick Bennett, Bob 
Lally, Carlo Scafidi, and Ducky Keane. Mr. 
Quinn calls Normie Roy, his captain, the best 
leader and competitor he has ever coached, and 
names the great Tony Lavelli as the finest school- 
boy basketball star he has ever witnessed in action. 

During the summer, in the few months that 
his mind is not centered on basketball, Mr. Quinn 
lives in his cottage at Quincy where he spends 
his time swimming and, in general, enjoying his 



well-earned rest. Since his college days he has 
built up a library of from 700 ro 800 books, 
ranging from the classics of Homer and Shake- 
speare to the stories of the wild west by Bret 
Harte. 

Just watching him sitting on the end of the 
bench, chin in hand, plotting his strategy and 
picking out the opponent's weaknesses during a 
game, gives one a feeling of complete confidence 
in his every move. As long as he remains as our 
basketball coach, Waltham High's court future 
will be bright. 



Basketball Summary 



After roaring through its first eleven games in 
a manner reminiscent of the powerhouse 1944 
team, a scrappy Waltham High School basketball 
five fought its way from the depths of a seemingly 
disastrous slump to work its way into the finals 
of this year's Tech Tourney at the Boston Gar- 
den. 

As three three-year veterans, Ed "Ducky" 
practically conceded their positions at the season's 
Keane, Normie Roy, and Teddy Scafidi were 
start, the remaining members of the squad were 
left to vie for the two remaining starting berths. 
One was won by Walter "Watso" Bartlett, a 
slim junior, who didn't find himself until the 
middle of the season. "Watso" scored a scant 15 
points in the first nine games from his forward 
station, but suddenly caught fire, found the range, 
led the team in scoring in several crucial games, 
and proved himself a great asset to t'he squad in 
its stretch drive. The fifth starter was Tony 
"Greek" Bahros, scrappy football center, who, 
although inexperienced, held down the impor- 
tant pivot post. "Greek," like Watso, flashed his 
best form near the close of the season. Rounding 
out the varsity were Ken Cormier, Bob Da- 
moiseau, and Tom McMahon, all of whom left 
the squad before the season's close, and also Bob 
Dakin, "Buddy" Williams, and Fred Wills. 

The hoopsters, after the auspicious start, 
bogged down following their initial loss, a heart- 
breaking 37-36 setback at the hands of arch-rival 
Newton, and proceeded to drop three of their 
next four games, falling into a tie with Cam- 
bridge Latin for leadership of the Suburban Lea- 
gue. Mr. Quinn, veteran hoop mentor, quicklj 
took steps to remedy the weakness, and brought 
the team into the Tech Tourney at its best form 



of the season. The Quinnmen toppled highly 
favored North Quincy, 33-30, in the opening 
round and then exploded the upset of the tourney 
in conquering Brockton, 31-24; the Shoe City 
five had been surprise victors over a supposedly 
invincible Somerville team that had twice admin- 
istered defeat to Waltham. In the finals the team 
had the misfortune of running up against a superb 
Durfee High contingent, w T hich later proved it- 
self the second-best team in the New England 
Tourney. The Fall River sensations easily won 
the Eastern Massachusetts crown from our ex- 
hausted boys, who covered themselves with glory. 

The loss in the finals was not a depressing de- 
feat, however, as both Mr. Quinn and the team 
itself expressed satisfaction with the job done on 
the season as a whole and the first two games 
of the tourney in particular. For being invited 
to the tourney each member of the squad received 
a small plaque, and for reaching the finals, a silver 
ring. Normie Roy's outstanding performance in 
the series earned him a place on the tourney all- 
star team at a guard position. 

As expected, the steady season-long play of 
Keane, Roy, and Scafidi was rewarded by berths 
on the coaches' Suburban League all-star team. 
Ducky Keane, with 1 7 1 points, was the league's 
third highest scorer and his aggregate represented 
the largest number of points ever tallied by a 
member of a Waltham High School basketball 
team. 

Although the big three are all due to graduate 
this June, Mr. Quinn will have a number of ex- 
perienced players returning next fall. He is look- 
ing forward, and not too happily may we add, to 
another typically pint-sized squad, and he stresses 
the fact that he will besjin from scratch next fall

with every position open for contention. If he 

can turn out a team that fares as well as this 
year's, we shall all have good reason to be satis- 
fied.

Cold, hot, cold — that's the way the fortunes 
of this year's W. H. S. hockey team ran as it 
struggled through the season to finish with an un- 
impressive record of 2 victories, 5 losses, and 3 
ties. Although no returning veterans from the 
all-conquering 1945 team were to be had, and 
four newcomers to the high school hockey picture 
were in the starting lineup, Coach Walter Brinn, 
as well as the team itself, held an optimistic out- 
look at the start of the season. 

Dreams of a championship team were rudely 
shattered, however, when the pucksters dropped 
the first two games of the season, 3-1, and 3-2. 
In both setbacks the squad more than held its 
own in territorial play, but seemed to lack the 
scoring punch necessary to swing the balance in 
its favor. This dark period represented the team's 
first low ebb of fortune. 

Then came the renaissance. The starting line- 
up was revamped, the style of play was changed, 
and the result was a winning club. First return 



of the shakeup was a 1-1 tie with Framingham. 
The following week the peak, which was to last 
four weeks, was reached, as the team virtually 
skated Norwood out of the St. Botolph Street 
rink in a decisive 4-0 triumph. For the first time 
it appeared that the team was ready and raring 
to go, as it displayed lightning speed, smooth pass- 
ing, hard and accurate shooting, and superb goal 
tending to go with a now smooth-functioning 
and more experienced defense tandem. In proper 
condition and spirit, the team squared off for suc- 
cessive games against the league leaders, Water- 
town and Walpole. The two resulting games 
ranked -among the fastest skated and best played 
of the Bay State season, each winding up in a 
scoreless deadlock. In both contests the team 
played a championship calibre of hockey, out- 
skating and outshooting its highly regarded rivals, 
but without the smile of Lady Luck, had to be 
content with ties rather than victories. Much of 
the credit for these two dazzling performances 



fyoMo.uMMXj, ^Ite, Giimlott ^eamb 



HOCKEY 



can be traced to the sparkling net play of Charlie 
"Chuck" Roache, the high school's sensational 
sophomore. 

Needing a victory to qualify for the first divi- 
sion play-offs, the team came through with the 
chips down to batter a weak B. C. High club, 
5-1. The lone B.C. High marker represented 
the first goal scored against Waltham and Chuckie 
Roache in over ten periods of blistering hockey. 

Qualifying for the first division play-offs did 
not pan out as well as expected, however, as the 
Brinnmen, losing their scoring punch as well as 
their defensive effectiveness, dropped three 
straight contests to the league's best by the scores 
of 5-1, 3-1, and 3-2. 

Waltham's lone representative on the first team 
of the coaches' all-star aggregation was a light- 
ning-fast junior, Charlie Metz. Chuckie Roach, 
Lome MacArthur, and Joe Chaisson were hon- 
ored with second team berths. 

Coach Brinn, realizing his work is cut out for 
him in the coming season, has already organized 
next year's squad and has held several practices 
since the close of the season. With three first- 
team men, Metz, McKenna, and Roache return- 
ing next season, along with the second line intact, 
Coach Brinn has a strong nucleus with which 
to work.

At last the graduation issue of the Mirror is 
ready to go oft to press and we editors are taking 
this opportunity to express our gratitude to the 
people responsible for the success of this year's 
publications. 

Our hearty appreciation goes to the editors of 
the Literary Committee, and Art Staff, and in 
particular to four staff members who did an out- 
standing job: Miriam Greene, Barbara Fitz- 
gerald, Charles Koulopoulos, and Isabelle Mac- 
Kcnzie. The Mirror write-up staff, whose names 
appear in the front of this book, did admirably, 
and we are grateful also to Joan Lavash, Mar- 
guerite Peterson, Patricia Starmer, Barbara Al- 
len, Jean Storer, and Marjorie Ellis for assist- 
ing us in correcting and arranging the write-ups. 

The Business and Advertising Staff worked 
eommendably, under the capable management of 
Lois Coolidge and Robert Sivewright. We thank 
Miss Grover and her classes, who typed the 
manuscripts for the printer, Mr. Jacob Notten- 
burg and the members of the Trade School print- 
ing department, who did the make-up and press- 
work, and the Mirror room-agents, who sold and 
distributed the magazine.

Our advisors, Miss Viets, Mr. Hood, Mrs. 
Devine, and Miss Russo, deserve special credit 
for their valuable counsel and assistance. Mr. 
Thomas Murphy, editor of the Waltham Tribune 
was also very helpful in making suggestions for 
our benefit. 

We extend our best wishes for a profitable year 
to the staff of the 1947-48 Mirror and hope that 
they will enjoy their work as much as we have 
enjoyed ours.
